National 4.H Club Week Bein9 Observed In County This Week This is National 4-H Club week. tales and made the American All over America, hundreds ot country home the envy Of the thousands of youngsters and lead- agricultural world. ers are telling others what 4-H has meant in our democratic scheme of things. The 4-H Club program grew dot of agricultural and homemaking clubs that were organized for rur- al children around the turn of the century. Those were the days when scientists from the Agricul- tural Experiment Stations drove horse and buggy to farming com- munities and held institutes to ex- plain new cultural me.hods to armers. In those days, farmers and their wives were not quick to change. "What was good for Grandpa is good enough for me" was pretty much their rule of thumb. They were sometimes violent in their resistance to learning, especially whcn new ideas cut across tra- ditional grain. But the early agricultural sci- entists who drove the chuck-holed roads, saw in the eager faces ot rural childrem a yearning for knowledge. And they saw a ling- age between a child's learning and the learning,of parents. "Here is a new type of corn", the scientists said to rural child- ren. "Plant it alongside your fa- ther's and compare yields and quality at harvest time." FARM CHILDREN responded. They not, only planted corn. but they raised improved selections ot pigs, ca.tile, chickens, wheat and other agricultural commodities. As tle demonstrations paid off, inter- est jelled into clubs made up ot youngsters who were 1)aving the way to better rural living. Parents hat to shift from the old t)aths. They eollld not shlnd back and watch their children beat them at tile farming game. From Experiment Station Home Economics. rural girls carried new visions of the homemaking arts to their mothers. Gradually, an understanding of sanitation ancl nutrition swept away old wire's THE NATIONAL 4-H club movement resulted from this phil- osophy of learning how and shoW. ing others. Although the 4-H club program cannot assume all credit f--  "c's abundance of food ...... en ,,a and fiber, its edueatmnal concepts were basic to these amumancies. Nations throughout the world recognized the validity of the 4-H educational methods. Many have copied or are copying the idea for the betterment of their societies as ours has benefited from it.
